on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe

anybody who was brown or black. bemis practically anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. you had a case here where the republican party right now is stampeding toward irrelevance. if they do not catch up with everything in the national journal, there is changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama yesterday put together this new ascendant coalition, put it back together from 2008 and enough of the democratic coalition so you have this combination of hispanics, more than 70% of hispanics, young voters, people who both want to twice as a democrat. they're likely to remain a dealt crack -- democrat. republicans, what they're missing is the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. like it or not, this is becoming a majority minority nation and the republican party, this is the last time republicans will have a chance at winning the presidency with this kind of electoral strategy. >> let's talk about why this happened. some of it was issues, some of it was th

last thing. scott brown is replaced by elizabeth warren. olympia snowe replaced by an independent. herb cole replaced by tammy baldwin. the pattern in all of those is that it's a more conservative person in the senate replaced by a less conservative person in the senate. maybe fine lines, but that's the pattern in all of them. is one of the kons chemical weapons that democrats might reform the filibuster? >> i hope so. two ideas i'd throw out there. to get rid of it on the motion to proceed. that would reduce everything in half the time we spend on bills. the second, require these people to stand and speak. make them stand and speak. you could have a filibuster clock on your show. it would be mesmerizing. not really actually. people would hate it. they would hate that two people would hold up one judge in illinois. that's what we're seeing. if those senators are held accountable by making them actually stand and filibuster, it would make a difference. the american people will see it. there could be other reforms as well. i put those out there as doable and something that could make a hu
